A weekend escape to Saratoga, Wyoming

When it comes to vacation, I love a place that combines the outdoors with relaxation.

I had driven the scenic byway between Laramie and Rawlins, Wyoming before and knew that spending a few nights somewhere in between was a must. Surrounded by the Medicine Bow National Forest, I knew that Saratoga would be the perfect destination. Eliza and I headed out early, left the traffic and city behind for the mountains with our swimsuits and fly rods in tow.
